7:57am
are typed. here is an example we are on the main google site, type in one letter "w" instantly results pop up for what google thinks you're going to search for, weather, and it puts on results for that results based on weather in san francisco because that is where the computer the person is searching on is located. but, if the person continues to types to type say they wanted wikipedia, so they added the letter "i" and then instantly the results change and you see results for wikipedia. it is basically google trying to predict what you want to search for and as they do that they put up real-time results, so if they are predicting correctly, you should not have to type out your complete search query. saving you a little time and since the results are constantly changing to fit their prediction and your search it saves you a little time from hitting the enter key or clicking on the search button. they say wehn it predicts correctly it can save a user 2-5 seconds per search. gabe slate, kron4 news. >> a live look at the florida
